But before I start out with any reviews, I'm going to lay out the criteria by which I will be assessing them.
1) Faithfulness of the gospel.
In any site for Non-Christians this is the most important thing. It could succeed at everything else, but if the gospel is not clearly and faithfully presented it has failed.
There are four main things that I'd look for:
- God: is it clear that God is the Holy, Loving Creator?
- Man: that we are made in God's image to worship him, but have rebelled against him and are therefore subject to his good and just but terrible anger.
- Christ: that he is the perfect God-man who died on the cross to take the punishment that sinners deserve, and was raised from the dead, and is now the risen Lord.
- Response: that Jesus calls us now to turn from our sin, submit to his Lordship, and trust him for our salvation.
If the gospel is presented faithfully, how clear is it? Is it presented in a way that someone with no knowledge of biblical language might understand.
How well has the gospel been applied to people's lives in various ways, so that people might see it's implications clearly? Are the implications of the gospel confused with the gospel?
Does the site take the responsibility to help people to know how they might find out more about the gospel?
Is it easy to navigate the site. Does it look good?
